Bellydancing Burlesque Isis Wings
Isis is the goddess of nature and magic from Ancient Egypt, Greece and the Roman Empire. She was believed to be the ideal mother and wife as well as a friend to all.
Currently, the influences of burlesque costumes have been peppered through high fashion. This has included risque leather designer Zana Bayne (above).
Not to mention Jean Paul Gaultier SS14 and his latest collaboration with Dita Von Teese (below). Now you can combine high fashion and one of the most popular burlesque costume ideas, burlesque Isis wings.
The pioneer of modern dance, Loïe Fuller, can certainly be attributed with the popularity of Isis wings in burlesque dancing. A former burlesque dancer and Folies Bergères performer, she became known for her creative use of a skirt.
Within the art form today, burlesque Isis wings are used more at the end of a striptease to show a dancer’s skill with the prop. Whilst burlesque performers simultaneously tease and reveal their body.
